John
Hard to believe all the years that have passed by, but to me it seems like yesterday.....
I knew you from Schurz High School......You were one of the 'good' guys.
Like you, I was in the Corps & like you I went to Nam. When I heard that you were killed, I felt so damn depressed....another guy killed in that lousy war!

Rest well John.....you earned it.

My Brother My Friend

John was my older brother and my friend . He played the trumpet and liked jazz and had his own pool cue . He was a cool older brother ! He watched out for me and I still have a postcard he sent me from boot camp .
20 is so very young to die -what a future he might have had . His passing affected all of us profoundly , but he will live on in our hearts forever . When I think of him I remember his smile and sometimes I can still hear his laugh.....
Rest in peace my brother - see you on the other side . Love ,
Nancy

He was my Brother and hero

John was my older brother -twin to James - I saw him that last Christmas when he came home - my family so happy to see him - on Mothers day 1967 - he left this world - a world full of pain and sadness - for me it was very hard - for his brother Jim there are no words - we loved you John,

Paul
